Day 6: Gilligan’s Rescue

Mission Statement: “Gilligan’s Rescue is in the business of promoting the German Shepherd Breed. We hope to insure the future of this wonderful breed by implementing rescue programs and by educating the public about the German Shepherd Breed. Gilligan’s Rescue is dedicated to saving German Shepherds by rescuing, rehabilitating and placing these canines in loving, forever homes.

Gilligan’s Rescue is a no kill, volunteer rescue organization serving Southeast Texas. Gilligan’s Rescue will implement an in-depth adoption process, which would include education for potential adopters about the responsibilities and costs associated with dog ownership. Through this application process, we hope to place canines in responsible, loving, committed forever homes. As Gilligan’s Rescue is a volunteer, foster based rescue, dependent on donations received from the general public, we simply can not take in an unlimited number of dogs in need. However, through the use of foster homes working closely with the rescue, we hope to provide help to as many canines as possible, with special needs canines as our first priority.”
